Abstract
Four experiments were carried out to determine the effect of staking on the growth and yield of tomato in Western Nigeria. Staking increased both total dry matter production and leaf area index. Fruit yield increases of between 18 and 25 per cent were obtained by staking. Both average fruit weight and number of fruits per plant were increased by staking. It was concluded that staking increased profit margin in tomato production.
